COMIC BOOK EXPO

San Bernardino, CA. – The John M. Pfau Library at Cal State University, San Bernardino, will host a comic book expo on Wednesday, February 21st, 2018.  Everyone—students, staff, faculty, and members of the community—are welcome to participate in this free event.

The program runs from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in PL-5005, located on the fifth floor of the library.  Parking is $6 per day.

The Pfau Library has more than 3,200 comic books in our Special Collections, which include DC and Marvel superheroes, The Walking Dead series, Archie, and much more.

Some of the popular comic books will be on exhibit throughout the library.

We will have a costume contest with prizes, so come dressed as your favorite comic book character or hero.

James Knight, III, who served as a Pfau Library information archives specialist, will facilitate discussions on a range of subjects, including comic stories in the media, human themes in movies, cultural characters, science-based mysteries, and classic comedies.

Special guest, Javier Hernandez, cartoonist, art educator, and co-founder of the “Latino Comics Expo,” will take part in the discussions, conduct an interactive workshop, and sign autographs.

This is a great opportunity for comic book enthusiasts to meet and engage others with shared interests, and to learn about the wealth of comics material archived in the Pfau Library.

Orozco: The Life & Death of a Mexican Revolutionary

Poster for event.

Orozco: The Life and Death of a Mexican Revolutionary

Presented by: Raymond Caballero, Attorney, Author, and Independent Historian

Facilitated by: Dr. Fabian Borges Herrero, Assistant Professor of Political Science at CSUSB

Date: January 24, 2018

Time: Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Location: PL-5005 (Library Multimedia Center)

On August 31, 1915, a Texas posse lynched five “horse thieves.” One of them, it turned out, was General Pascual Orozco Jr., military hero of the Mexican Revolution. Was he a desperado or a hero? Orozco’s death proved as controversial as his storied life, a career of mysterious contradictions.

In this presentation, Caballero, an attorney with a life-long interest in the Mexican Revolution, will tell the compelling story of Orozco’s meteoric rise and ignominious descent, including the obscured circumstances of his death.

Caballero—who served as mayor of El Paso from 2001 to 2003—is a graduate of Texas Western College (now UTEP); he earned a law degree from the University of Texas at Austin, a master’s degree in tax law from George Washington University, and a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard.

In 1979, he won a U.S. Supreme Court case in which he defended an African American accosted by El Paso police.

Copies of Caballero’s latest book, Orozco: The Life and Death of a Mexican Revolutionary, will be available for purchase and signing at the talk.

The program is free and open to everyone from both the campus and broader community.

For more information, contact Robie Madrigal, Pfau, Library, at rmadriga@csusb.edu or (909) 537-5104.
